Rowan is common throughout the wood though there is a higher density in the NW part of the wood. Easy to identify by its pinnate compound leaves and in autumn by the red fruits.

The Ash has somewhat similar compound leaves (hence the Rowan’s alternative name of Mountain Ash – though not related), but are not as serrated and closely spaced.

Rowans can come in many shapes and sizes depending on the competition from surrounding trees, as shown in the following gallery:
